Masters (M.Sc.) thesis. Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou Gmelin) have been observed to congregate on permanent snowpatches during the summer-fly season at Macmillan Pass, NWT. Thesis proposes that the snowpatch is selected as a "relief habitat", due to reduced mosquito harassment and behavioural thermoregulation in response to heat stress.
